User Role Descriptions & Adding a User

There are five different user roles in Facility Schedule. Each role offers a different level of access in the system and will see slightly different views on their home page. All roles, with the exception of the Service Provider, have the ability to enter new schedules into the system.

User Roles

Administrator

An Administrator has access to the entire system, including the account setup. They see all schedules on the home page and calendar. Administrators can activate schedules and create invoices. You can have as many Administrators as you need.

Site Administrator I

The Site Administrator I can be defined as anyone that may need to approve or decline schedules for a location. They have access to all portions of the system except the account setup. On the home page, they only see schedules for their assigned locations; however they can see events taking place at any location by viewing the calendar. They can only approve schedules for their locations. They cannot activate a schedule, cancel events, or create invoices.

Site Administrator II

The Site Administrator II can be defined as anyone that may need to approve, activate, decline, or cancel schedules for a location. They have access to all portions of the system except the account setup. On the home page, they only see schedules for their assigned locations; however they can see events taking place at any location by viewing the calendar. They can approve and activate schedules only for their assigned location(s). They can also cancel events and create invoices if needed.

A Site Administrator II can perform more functions than a Site Administrator I.

Service Provider

The Service Provider can be defined as anyone who may need to perform a task for an event. This role is view only. They can see their assigned tasks on their home page. They have a calendar tab and can see what events are taking place at their locations. They also have access to run calendar reports which show tasks needed for the events. (Example: custodians, HVAC technicians, audio visual technicians, security, kitchen staff)

Requester

Requesters are those who will request facility usage. They can submit requests for any location and also view any requests they have submitted.

Comptroller

The Comptroller is not an actual user role in Facility Schedule, rather it is an extra level of responsibility above the role. If the system does not know who the schedule request should be assigned to, either through a lack of or an error in the routing rules, it will automatically route the request to the comptroller. Only one user can be designated as the comptroller for the account.
